In 2022 it looks a little unreasonable to not use LVM but only partitions.
Resizing a filesystem on a partition (as opposed to on an LVM volume) should only be done, if / as long as the filesystem is not mounted on that partition.
- https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-resize-ext4-root-partition-live-without-umount – “Resizing any live partition without unmout comes with a tremendous risk of loosing data thus it is not recommended. If you a have a sensitive data stored on your system, it is always recommended to take the system down make a backup and resize the partition while it is not mounted.“
